ALBUS DUMBLEDORE

What cocktail could possibly fit our beloved headmaster?  Why, a Lemon Drop, of course!  Dumbledore loved the drink, as we can see in this quote from Albus himself:

Would you care for a lemon drop?”

“A lemon drop.  They are kind of a muggle sweet I’m rather fond of.”

FIREWHISKEY

Served at the Hog’s Head Pub, this drink is only for the bravest wizard or witch.  With whiskey and cinnamon schnapps, it’s like swallowing fire!

BUTTERED FIREWHISKEY

This fusion drink combines two favorite Harry Potter drinks:  Butterbeer and Firewhiskey.  This drink is like the best of both worlds.  If you find Butterbeer too sweet and the traditional Firewhiskey above too strong, combining the two tones down both extremes for a drink with a light sweetness and nice fiery kick.  This recipe uses Flying Cauldron Butterscotch Beer (though I’m sure a simple muggle cream soda will do) and adds cinnamon whiskey and Bacardi Rum 151 for presentation to get that eerie glowing fire on top.

RUBEUS HAGRID

Hagrid was where it all began and when life started looking up for Harry.  Hagrid was one of the first adults who showed Harry love and kindness after his parents passed away (remember that sweet birthday cake Hagrid brought Harry after the Dursleys “forgot” yet another of his birthdays?), not to mention his great helpfulness in teaching Harry and his friends about the wizarding world.  Here we honor our dear friend with a drink that he would love – Kahlua, vodka, Guinness, and a splash of Coke.
